Steffen Lehmann

Hatje Cantz, Ostfildern, 2009


Featuring essays by acknowledged experts, Back to the City documents twenty-eight site-specific installations and temporary interventions in Germany and Australia that provide exemplary perspectives for the revitalization of fallow land, thus demonstrating the great potential of the temporary use of urban space. The projects date from 2002 to 2008 and were curated by architect and urban planner Steffen Lehmann, Professor at the University of Newcastle, Australia, UNESCO Professor of Sustainable Urban Development, and the founding director of s_Lab Space Laboratory for Architectural Research and Design.
